Sara Louise Little monument at Crawford Cemetery-Crawford, Georgia

Oglethorpe County

Sara Little (1898-1902) is a sweet Victorian marker that her grieving father had made in her likeness. Supposedly the mother was a seamstress and would fancy clothes as detailed as the ones on the monument.

Every time I visit, there are different items left behind for Sara.

I’ve read one account that the grandparents had a likeness of her painted into their ceiling. It’s not something I believe. If anyone has proof, please share.

  1. I have seen the painting you are referring to. It was shown to me about 10 years ago. I cannot for the life of me remember which house was theirs to go back and see it. I regret not taking a picture of it and/or remembering the exact house.

      1. Just did a little extra digging. “ Her grandparents house is close to the depot on South Elm Street. There is a mural of Sara on the ceiling.”

        A big clue! I’ll have to go by again now that I have a street to connect with my memory and see if that helps me find it again.
